Unfit for human consumption

The government has announced that the intenet will be censored (filtered) at the ISP level. But Australians shouldn't worry that the soon to be implemented block of sites deemed inappropriate will infringe our freedoms because an "independent body" and not the government will decide which "internet content is simply not suitable in a civilised society." Senator Conroy, this bastard baby's father, elaborating:

It is important that all Australians, particularly young children, are protected from this material.

The Government believes that parents want assistance to reduce the risk of children being exposed to such material.

But Senator, what of those unfortunate Australians who must view this material in order to deem we must be protected from it? Surely they will go insane or be driven to commit unspeakable acts. It all seems so unfair.

And what next will our benevolent, paternal government decide to protect us from? How about fatty foods? Vehicles able to exceed the posted speed limit. Alcohol. Cigarettes. Talcum powder (bad for the lungs). Flying (carbon!). Ban them, ban the lot. Better safe than sorry, I say.
